23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[b] Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans -23 The only way for us to be justified before God is through Jesus Christ, that is grace.This masturbation is really wrecking my life and i cant stop it, so hopefully chemical castration will work for me.Regular castration is an option too, look into it, research it.I couldn’t agree more with what was said by Kerri, the solution is to remove the church, be real, face the issue with a rational mind. To notice how something seemingly innocent has crippled your life, and then to go forward honestly trying to make it better is a huge part of life.greater healing will come through that then it ever will talking to a man in an office who is likely viewing pornography himself but making sure you feel like trash for doing so. But the realization of sin is not about making you feel like trash. The thing is, to admit the truth and go against it is painful, bu that doesn’t mean the truth should be abandoned.
I hope in Jesus that you pray and seek God the Father through Jesus regarding this. Hi David, I was in the same situation, I’m young and single and I don’t watch porn anymore, even though I rarely masturbate but it doesn’t affect me in the same way as when I was watching porn,and I plan to stop that also. I was in the same cycle, Sin,guilt than getting rid of guilt, and back again.
They will undoubtedly assist many young men and couples in alleviating harmful guilt and pain… I hate the thing because it makes me lose my self control. The truth is, even when you’ve figured it all out, you will likely still sometimes fall into the trap of pornography. All good things in life take hard work, and most of them will require a change in you. Its about looking up and seeing what your missing, the person you could be. Pick yourself up by the boot straps and start making it better, by your own sweat. I only wish that the church did not foster the “trashy” feelings that it does in relation to these issues, but the more I learn about the church, the more I am certain that, almost invariably, these are the feelings that it fosters. i am a born again believer in Jesus, and i struggle with lust, lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and masturbation is the spinoff of lust and porn also, i have done everything i know to do, regarding the bible, etc.
I forget what is important to me and hunger for this thing that, aside from driving away your spirituality, interferes with your life in general. prayers, and it came to me to be chemically castrated.
Once while discussing my problem with a Bishop at BYU (who compounded my guilt by convincing me I had an addiction), he confided in me that about half the boys in the elders quorum were dealing with pornography and working with him.
That’s just the ones that had actually talked to him.
I think it’s important not to punish yourself for it, or torment yourself.
